On March 7, 2019, we published the draft Director's Rule 1-2019 for the Seattle Design Commission's recruitment and appointment process for subcommittees that evaluate public benefit packages for street and alley vacations. Written comments on the proposed adoption may be submitted through March 23, 2019.

The Seattle Design Commission advises the Mayor, City Council, and City departments on the design of capital improvements and other projects and policies that shape Seattle's public realm.
